I don’t want to be like my intermediate schools maths teacher. He always kept on going on about his trips to Argentina and how amazing everything was there. Even though it could be a good way to distract him from actually continuing teaching us anything. What I’m trying to say is that New York was amazing but I will talk about other things as well.
One of the most amazing things about New York, maybe because of their air already being so polluted, was that there were so few smokers around. It was a chock every time I saw one, because I spent two weeks there and only saw a handful. Didn’t seem as socially acceptable as it is here in Sweden. Maybe they actually listen to science or do they just realise it’s actually disgusting?
And I saw a sign at a place called Superiority burger (with amazing vegetarian and vegan food btw) that said: No smoking or electronic cigarette use. Hadn’t seen that at any place before and I didn’t quite understand, because I’m not bothered by the use of electronic cigarettes like http://www.electrocigarette.se/ because you can use it everywhere and it’s just vapours. I used to be a smoker a few years ago, stupidly enough, but that’s a different subject.
I think that there are many ways of quitting but this is one of the better options since most peoples addictions are mostly in their heads and you can easily deceive your own mind. Personally I just came to a sudden realisation that I didn’t need it in my life and stopped just like that. But I understand that we all work differently.
Smokers in Sweden has little or no respect for others and thankfully you aren’t allowed to smoke inside restaurants and other places any longer, but I think it should be even more limited and in the end forbidden. Good riddance to bad rubbish I’d say.
